Digilent Pmods invade our workbench and and bring their Cerebot overloards along for the ride!


Digilent Cerebot 32MX7


Back in May we were the first to formally introduce you to Digilent's chipKIT line of Arduino compatible PIC32 based development boards. Digilent liked our coverage so much that they sent an army of their Pmods led by their Cerebot masters to take over our workbench. We have a ton of stuff to cover from Digilent in the coming weeks and if they manufacture something you would like to see covered here on TheMakersWorkbench just let us know in the comments and we will do our best to give it a full write up... Keep reading after the jump.

In the into I mentioned that digilent sent us a pile of Pmods and I was not lying. We received sixteen total plus a voltage regulator module. Digilent sent us a Cerebot 32MX4 and a Cerebot 32MX7 so we could take full advantage of the Pmods as well. So over the course of the next several weeks we will be demonstraiting each of the Pmods and a full write up on both of the PIC32 based CEREBOT boards. I also plan on using a few of the Pmods on out chipKIT based electronics to control our RepRap 3d Printer.
